What can I plant NOW?

Lettuce, spinach, radish, kale, greens, broccoli, beets, cauliflower, peas & snap peas, carrots, potatoes, turnips, green onions (scallions).

  • Peas and snap peas don’t tolerate heat.  Plant by mid April or wait until next year.
  • Spinach doesn’t tolerate heat or long days.  Plant now and choose varieties that say “long standing” or “slow bolt”.  You can plant again at end of summer.
